Windows Pokki is a start menu replacement for Windows - and it has already been downloaded 1.5 million times for Windows 8. "Since the launch of Windows 8, we've seen over 1.5 million Pokki downloads on the new OS itself and users opening the Pokki Menu an average of 10 times a day. These early numbers demonstrate that users enjoy being able to instantly access and discover apps, straight from the desktop." And this is just one of the countless replacements. Microsoft should've never kept the traditional desktop in there - they've given users the ability to escape Metro, and this will only hurt the new environment.

Heh. I didn't know The Control Panel shows up in the Desktop folder (But, I know why it isn't on the desktop itself, since it's hidden via the display control panel by default)

But, when I want the Control Panel, I either search for it via the start screen, or go to the charms bar and click settings, or right-click in the bottom left (Where the start menu used to be). Also, the time-honored method of typing "Control Panel" into the location bar in an Explorer window.

Yeah. This guy's review is garbage.
